With commencement approaching, the reality is beginning to set in for some seniors. Their time as undergraduate students is coming to an end.
Stephen Chimenti is an exercise science major, and though his academic career is set to continue — he will go on to get his doctorate in physical therapy — he said he is going to miss the sense of community at Scranton.
“There are so many things about [Scranton] that I will miss, but if I had to narrow it down … it would be the community,” Chimenti said. “Meeting my friends and seeing people on my walks to class are things I have appreciated from the [first] day I stepped foot on campus.”
Chimenti met many of his friends during his first year as a Royal and was thankful to keep those connections during his four years.
“My lifelong favorite memories from Scranton come from the first semester of my first year,” Chimenti said. “Every day was a new experience, and I met more people than I ever have before.”
